Re: from Tangier coast can I see Europe across Gibraltar strait? You can , on a clear day, see Spain beautifully across the straits. As for the weather, that’s anyone’s guess! Save the beaches for the Spanish side.
Yes, you can see Africa from Europe. The Strait of Gibraltar has Spain and Gibraltar on the European side and Morocco and Ceuta on the African side. How far is Africa from Spain ? The shortest distance between Africa and Spain is 8.9 miles or 14 kilometers and is the straight’s narrowest point.
The shortest crossing from Spain to Morocco by ferry is between either Tarifa and Tangier or Gibraltar and Tangier. Both crossings take under 1 hour (incredible right!) and are open to both foot and car passengers.
You must have a valid passport with at least one blank page. Visas are not required for visits lasting less than 90 days. Visit the Embassy of the Kingdom of Morocco website for the most current visa information.

The Euro is a currency that is in high demand in Tangier . Many local merchants would be very happy to accept payments in Euros , but you ‘ll get a terrible conversion rate. It’s better and wiser to get a few dirhams.

A fixed crossing means a tunnel or bridge between Spain and Morocco at the narrowest point of the Mediterranean — the 15-mile-wide Strait of Gibraltar. At present the Mediterranean is crossed by ferries and ships linking European and African ports.
